Chris Mullin : The Friends of Harry Perkins
June 15 at 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm
A Very British Coup was a wonderful political thriller about a Labour prime minister called Harry Perkins, memorably played by Ray McAnally in a superb TV series. Written by an insider, it seemed all too plausible. Chris was Labour MP for Sunderland South from 1987 to 2010 and since his retirement a sequel has been brewing. At last we have The Friends of Harry Perkins. In a near-future, post-Brexit Britain, the fault lines forged in the white heat of the referendum have become entrenched features of British political life. Britain’s standing in the world has steadily diminished as its problems have grown. Into the maelstrom steps Fred Thompson, former aide to left-wing Prime Minister Harry Perkins. Now read on. And you won’t stop until you reach the last page!
